hi there, your discription fits that of a bruise which on get when blood clots under the skin due to injury . You need not worry about it as the blood clot will be absorbed slowly in a week or 10 days. Before that there will be some pain and tenderness for a few days. The bruise is reddish brown the ferst 2 days then slowly changes colour to blue, to green to light brown and completely fades away. If you experience any symptoms of dizzyness, or any episode of lightheadedness or loss of conciousness or any other symptom then you will have to visit an ER and get an Xray of the skull and a CT scan done. For now you can relax and not worry about it. You may take a painkiller to ease the pain. Some cold fomentation also might be helpful Take care.
